Fruit with that cheese

Funny thing I learned about cheese — they’re so salty and acidic that pairing them with wine is actually difficult. That’s why you want to serve your wine and cheese with some fruit. It balances out the flavors. My personal favorite is fresh figs openfaced with melted goat cheese on top. But you can also do sliced pears, green apples, berries or glazed nuts. Also try drizzling honey on top of any cheese, it’s fabulous.
